In case someone else was waitting for a response from the Regional Affairs Division, I just received this e-mail

"We would like to inform you that in the end it has been decided that Regional Affairs Division in the Americas Department will not be assigned a trainee for the session October 2013 – March 2014."

Update from ECFIN: Units A1, L2, and L5 wont get any trainees for next session. In case somebody planes to or have already lobbied to those units.. It is a real lottery to find unit in ECFIN that accepts trainees Very Happy

thanks!

The funny thing is that I had no interview and no real replies to my mails and I primarly applied to dg taxud (was my one and only choice actually). Don't know anything yet, even which unit it is and if it fits my feedback at all. That's a bit annoying about the commission

Congrats! Very interesting, you don't know where you will spend five months Smile haha, do you have a clue? Perhaps unit tax of the DG legal services? Try to look up the name of the person who emailed you in the directory or on the Internet.

Well I did, sure, but the Email comes from the HR of the SJ..so no idea. The Email looks quite official but I would like to know what this "officially booked" means in practice, if it's for sure ahhhh

did you hear back from the legal units, dutchBB?

Wow! Congratulations, sonnenblume! I am still hoping to receive good news from DG Justice/ Legal Services, although I had neither interviews nor reassuring emails.

Hi Luna, I have received several standard replies from HOME (the last one yesterday):
- D3 and B2: Selection is on-going. We will contact you if your profile fits our interests.
- B3 is not getting trainees this time
- A2: "Unfortunately there is no vacancies for trainees in our unit this year" which I guess means they are not getting any trainees either, but could also mean that the position is covered already.

The most annoying thing is that some unit in DG HOME called me for the March 2013 Traineeship and I declined the offer without realising :S. And now that it's among my preferred DGs and I would definitely accept they don't seem to want me Sad

Mmm, Matthias Oel would be B2, wouldn't it? I reached him in matthias.oel@ec.europa.eu

For B1 I wrote to diane.schmitt@ec.europa.eu, but never heard back from her.

I know, it's soooo annoying! I almost gave up already. Just hoping to get a nice surprise when I get the TO mail at the end of the month

Usually the interviews are quite informal. They ask you about your CV, about your motivation working for the EU, how you could fit. They also tell you about the tasks that await the future trainee. In the end it's like "this was just an unbinding interview, we cannot tell you that we have decided to take you. Only an official letter from the TO in the end of June will act as a confirmation".

However, prepare yourself for any kinds of questions. They could also test you in your language skills - so be prepared for an interview in a different language.

Good luck! sunny

No, nothing actually. Not even a thank you we are considering the short cv's general email. But it is nice to know that they did receive my email.

Anyone knows anything about EAC DG? Any phone interview?

Does anybody know the date that the TO will inform us about the final selection?

Thanks and good luck to everyone!

I send them an email a few weeks ago, after I got the news I was pre-selected. I did not get a reply until today saying that they have someone. No email or calls whatsoever. They informed me by mail. Don't know why they did not send you also an email, perhaps they will?
